About Jacqui

My husband and I have enjoyed Muskoka cottaging for more 20 years. We love it and treasure the times we have with family and friends. This cottage is beside ours and it is important for us that you enjoy the experience as much as we do.

Jacqui purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Jacqui chose Muskoka Lakes

This property is the nicest piece of land on the entire strip. The cottage is SW facing and situated on a point ( that means you are surrounded by water). You can see the lake from the Muskoka room180 degrees, kitchen, living room, dinning room, guest room and Master bedroom. There is total privacy on 1.5 acres of land. The location is prime and only 2hrs from Toronto. Close to spa, golf courses, restaurants. The cottage has been gutted and newly renovated and decorated. It is your home away from home.

What makes this cottage unique

580 ft of gentle sloping granite frontage guarantees lots of water activities. Included in the rental are 2 kayaks, paddle board and a canoe. The cottage is decorated to reflect the Muskoka charm - new harvest table, granite counter top, new beds...etc. The Muskoka Room is a favorite for reading a book, arts and crafts or for family board games and cards. The fireplace is spectacular. It was originally built as an outside fireplace then the original owner built the cottage around it. At the point, there is a fire pit hand made from Cape Breton ( these fire pits were on the front page of the Cottage Life 20th anniversary edition) ....imagine making s'mores under the moonlight hovering the still lake at night.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family just spent a week at the cottage. It's definitely one of our best summer vacations. Everything in the cottage was perfectly put together. The kitchen was extremely well equipped. The beds were comfortable. The overal cottage decor was utterly charming. Best of all was the view. We could see the lake every room. We had an incredibly fun time and would definitely next year!

Perfect Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Jacqui and Brad have done an amazing job renovating the cottage. All the finishes are very high end while still keeping the warmth and feel of an original Muskoka cottage. It is very well maintained and has all the amenities you could possibly ask for.

The point is very private, great views and you are able to enjoy the sun anytime of the day. It is the perfect spot for swimming, kayaking or paddle boarding, all of which we enjoyed immensely.

Our hosts were very friendly and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, we really didn't want to leave. Hope to return next year.

A new cottage with a rustic feel

  • 4 of 5

Jacqui and Brad have done a terrific job with this cottage. It is basically brand new but has a great rustic feel, especially the stone fireplace and some little touches like hooks to keep the windows open. The cottage was spotless when we arrived, the kitchen was well stocked and the BBQ worked well. The bed was very comfortable. The dock has great southern exposure, so you'll be in the sun pretty much all day. Jacqui was very helpful, answering questions and providing us with some extra kindling (we were there for a long weekend in the fall and had a fire every night). The only reason we can't give it 5 stars was traffic noise from a nearby road and the noise from trains that woke us up in middle of the night. Overall though we were very pleased with the cottage and Jacqui's hospitality.

Beautiful, tranquil, spacious, private cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 13 year old niece and I enjoyed a glorious fall weekend here. The cottage is beautifully appointed, modern with old style charm and all the creature comforts we needed, including plenty of kitchen tools for cooking indoor and out as well as relaxing. The water was cool so we didn't take advantage of the water toys but the view on the point was breathtaking on the spacious private property and the weather was warm enough to enjoy a swing on the hammock, a seat next to the boathouse, the sun and the sound of the birds and lapping water. Inside we enjoyed the roaring fireplace, cozy couch, comfortable beds and cottage games in the Muskoka room. Jacqueline was a helpful and attentive host and was in touch throughout to make sure all our needs were met. The sunrise and sunset were sensational. We hope to come back again!

A Magnificent Stay in Muskoka

  • 5 of 5

Our family was on an Ontario road trip and knew we had to spend a few days in Muskoka. When we walked into the cottage we were all very so impressed with how lovely everything looked. The decorations , furniture, and amenities were as wonderful as the pictures showed and more. We loved spending our days relaxing at the lake with the provided kayak, canoes, and SUP. The dock by the boat area was pure bliss with just the right amount of sun and cool lake water to cool off if needed. We spent most nights making a fire in the fire pit by the water and roasting s'mores, with a little bug spray the mosquitoes were not an issue. When we weren't outside the cottage had ample space for everyone to spread out and relax. The one instance that we needed to contact the owner the reply was quick and our question was easily answered. We enjoyed the cottage and the privacy it provided immensely and it was the perfect 4 day stop on our road trip.
